, mike. geoff americamerkley has emerged as a strong leader in the united states senate in his first term. we tried to get him on the show in studio today but he is back in oregon and he wasn't able to make it in, because i want to give him as much exposure as possible. and he's -- he's become the real leader on this issue, and he's not going to -- geoff merkley is not presenting this as a good deal. geoff merkley knows they could have gotten rid defendant filibuster. they could have done major, major reform. instead, we get this piece of nonsense from harry reid and mitch mcconnell. >> this is the full court press: "the bill press show," live on your radio and on current tv.
